Elephant Trunk Hill, Reed Flute Cave, Fubo Hill, Pearl Culture Shop
Taking its name from the shape as an elephant drinking from the Li River, Elephant Trunk Hill is Guilin's enduring landmark. After this site, your Guilin tour guide will escort you to a comparatively small yet scenic park: Fubo Hill. Have lunch in a local restaurant.
In the afternoon, break the heat and get into Reed Flute Cave. A famous pearl store will be the last stop for today.
- Smart Tips:
If you want to try something local, Shangshui Food Street at the southern corner of Zhengyang Pedestrian Street is a fun maze.
Li River Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo
The best way to have Guilin imprinted in your memory is to be in the picture. Today you will take a 4-hour boat trip down the Li River. You will arrive in Yangshuo in the afternoon.
You probably don't need a tour guide once you are in Yangshuo. Strolling around in the West Street will be rewarding.
- Smart Tips:
Don't miss Yangshuo's signature dish: Beer Fish. There are countless restaurants claiming themselves to be the best, however, local peope tend to dine in small restaurants instead of the big ones.
Don't get bored at night. Book a night show Impression Sanjie Liu to see how the director works his magic at a natural stage.
